A luthier is an artisan craftsman who has the technical skills to make or repair stringed instruments.
What can you count on with Day Violins?
Personalized Professional Services
Here at Day Violins, our customer’s needs are at the top of our priority list! We won’t rush you through the repair process. We guarantee that every question you have will be answered so you feel comfortable that your instrument is in professional capable hands.
It doesn’t matter if you need a new bridge or a detailed restoration, we apply the same experience, expertise and professionalism to each and every customer who walks through our door.
At Day Violins we want our customers to understand what repair is required and why. No upsells for unnecessary adjustments or enhancements.
Some repairs are quite simple, but some, because of the extremely technical nature of the repair, they can be costly. When you bring your instrument to Day Violins we can provide you an estimate based on what we can see at that time.
Once your instrument has been assigned to a luthier, they go over the instrument in detail to verify there were no repair issues that were missed with the initial exam. Before performing ANY work on the instrument we communicate back to you exactly what repair we will do, why we need to do the repair, and what the cost of services will be.
Day Violins has knowledgeable luthier staff that can provide you with the outstanding repair work we’ve promised because they have years of experience doing so.
As specialists in their field of instrument repair and instrument making, our luthiers have gone through rigorous training in order to perfect their craft. There is no “online training course” or a few months of study, it takes years of dedication and work to gain the skills needed to be considered a great luthier.

Peace of Mind through the Strings To Scroll Maintenance Plan
Day Violins offers a monthly maintenance plan to all our rental customers for repairs. The Strings to Scroll Maintenance Plan covers the cost for ALL repairs that are not caused intentionally or negligently. For a small monthly fee we’ll replace strings, rehair bows or provide a replacement instrument if your instrument is somehow broken beyond repair. This is just one way Day Violins is supporting string students and their families through their musical journey.
You can choose to add the Strings to Scroll Maintenance Plan to your rental when renting online or in our shop. Strings to Scroll begins at $5/month. Customers who are not local to Day Violins can also utilize the Strings to Scroll Maintenance Plan. When a repair is needed, we’ll ship a loaner instrument to use while your instrument is being repaired. If you are already a rental customer, please contact Day Violins and we can add the maintenance plan to your account.
